Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ed Thorp Memorial Trophy was the trophy awarded to the Champions of the National Football League from 1934 until 1969. The trophy was named after Ed Thorp, a noted referee, rules expert, and sporting goods dealer. Thorp died in 1934, and a large, traveling trophy was made that year, that was to be passed along from champion to champion each season with each championship team's name inscribed on it. Unlike the modern day Lombardi trophies, the Ed Thorpe Memorial Trophy did not become the possession of the winning team, but instead spent a year with the winning team before being passed on to the next year's champion, much like the Grey Cup in the Canadian Football League or the Stanley Cup in the National Hockey League. In addition to their year with the Ed Thorp Memorial Trophy, though, teams were also awarded a smaller replica of the trophy, which they were allowed to keep.show more
